"The Hundred-Foot Journey"
Drama, PG, 122 minutes
The culinary culture-clash comedy The Hundred-Foot Journey dawdles, like a meal that drags on and on because the waiter is too busy texting to bother bringing you the check. Based on the Richard Morais novel, it’s a low-flame romance and low-heat feud about a family of Indian restaurateurs who set up their spicy, gaudy and noisy eatery across the road from a posh, Michelin-endorsed, haute cuisine establishment in rural France. Lasse Hallstrom (Chocolat) directs; Helen Mirren is the imperious, snooty French restaurant’s owner; and the young leads — Manish Dayal as the aspiring Indian chef, Charlotte Le Bon as the winsome French one — are charming.

"Let's Be Cops"
Comedy, R, 104 minutes
The laughs are loud, lewd and low in “Let’s Be Cops,” a spoof of cop “buddy pictures” that is pretty much the definition of “an August comedy.” Jake Johnson, of TV’s “New Girl,” is paired up with another generation of Wayans — Damon Wayans Jr. — in this farce about two Ohio losers losing their way through Los Angeles, a tough place to be a single guy with zero status. Justin (Wayans) is a meek and mousy video game developer who is so passive that he gives off a feminine vibe. Ryan (Johnson) is an ex-jock who once quarterbacked for Purdue, but now spends his days roughing up kids in pick-up games on a local playground. Justin’s cop-centric video game may have been rejected by his bullying boor of a boss, but the police gear he has around the house is handy to have when he and Ryan want to drop in on an alumni “costume” party. People there mistake them for police. Women eyeball these manly men in uniform. And Ryan, who used to feel the love of the crowd, gets hooked. Co-writer/director Luke Greenfield (“Something Borrowed”) lets what few laughs there are in the script land. Johnson’s timing is sharp, and Wayans has that Wayans way with dopey under-reactions to crazy situations. The pairing of these two sometimes works, but Wayans has more of the name and the look than the edge or charismatic comic spark of his dad or his dad’s funnier family members.

"The November Man"
Action, R, 108 minutes
Pierce Brosnan, who served queen and country as James Bond in the 1990s (and once in the aughts), is back in spy mode in "The November Man," although this op — ex-CIA, not MI6 — is a harder, more cynical chap. In retirement in Lausanne, Peter Devereaux has been bruised and burned and saddened by all the deadly games he's had to play. Better to live out his life sipping espressos on the shores of Lake Geneva. Fat chance. When his old handler from Langley arrives with a special request, Devereaux feels compelled to accept the job: extract an agent from Moscow. An efficient, if not exactly inspiring, espionage thriller, full of high-tech gadgetry (surveillance drones! flash drives!) and low-tech action (car chases! shootouts! a shovel to the head!), The November Man combines a couple of familiar tropes: 1) the trusted protege who becomes your nemesis, and 2) the witness everyone is after, and who happens to look like a supermodel.

"When the Game Stands Tall"
Drama, PG, 125 minutes
"When the Game Stands Tall" is a solid if unsurprising and uninspiring melodrama built around high school football, faith-based but "Friday Night Lite." It's the latest of that peculiar sub-genre of sports films, where filmmakers bend over backwards to make a perennial powerhouse football factory look like an underdog. These stories, about a Permian High in Texas ("Friday Night Lights") or T.C. Williams in Virginia ("Remember the Titans") look at status as a burden, and claim to be about "more than a game," even as they build toward their by-the-book "Big Game" finale.

”Guardians of the Galaxy"
Sci-fi action, PG-13, 122 minutes
Chris Pratt plays the leader of a misfit band of anti-heroes, including a cynical raccoon and a walking tree, in this refreshing confection of entertainment, a mostly lighthearted and self-referential comic-book movie with loads of whiz-bang action, some laugh-out-loud moments and a couple of surprisingly beautiful and touching scenes as well
Rating: Three and a half stars

”Dolphin Tale 2"
Drama, PG, 1:44 minutes
A fictionalized account of the true story of Winter, a badly-injured dolphin, rescued by the Clearwater (Florida) Aquarium, and how a prosthetic tail was fabricated for her allowing her to swim and survive and inspire veterans, cancer survivors and accident victims of all ages with her pluck, “Dolphin Tale” covered all the bases.
Rating: Two stars

”This Is Where I Leave You"
Comedy, R, 103 minutes
Jane Fonda is the matriarch-in-mourning, presiding over a big, noisy, dysfunctional clan brought together by the death of her spouse. Bickering, bed-hopping, boozing, blah-blah ensues. With Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne and more.
Rating: Three stars
